SEU Ranked One of Fastest Growing Institutions Nationwide

SEU has once again been named one of the fastest growing private non-profit institutions in the country in the 2022-23 almanac released by the Chronicle of Higher Education (CHE). Based upon growth data acquired from the years 2010-2020, SEU has been ranked fourth among master’s level colleges and universities due to its 243.5% growth in enrollment.

The upcoming fall semester, which officially kicks off on August 24, will mark another record-breaking year of enrollment for the university with an anticipated total enrollment of more than 10,000 students — a significant increase from last year’s enrollment of 9,365.

Of the 10,000 students, nearly 3,000 of them will be taking classes at SEU’s Lakeland campus. The remaining number will be online, dual-enrolled, or spread out among 181 partner site campuses across the country.

SEU has also been ranked by the CHE as one of the top producers of undergraduate majors in theology and religion in the country. This classification follows shortly after the recent introduction of two new doctoral degrees for the 2022 fall semester.

The university will now be offering a Doctor of Missiology degree, as well as a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership with a concentration in Ministry Leadership.
